The team, wanted to redesign the experience of digital betting. They asked our support to understand and improve the experiences of offline players.


Field observations and contextual interviews

During our 5 weeks ethnographic research, we immersed into the lives of offline bettors. We’ve conducted shadowing studies and field observations at betting windows especially on match days.

Together with other participants of the project we’ve mapped out the customer journeys of 4 different bettor personas. Our researched showed pain points in online betting as well as special moments between offline / online worlds where innovative interactions may emerge.
